Blondie takes us on a rapturous ride through New York in video for new single, “Long Time”

BMGBlondie has released an official video for “Long Time,” one of the tracks on the influential New Wave band’s forthcoming album, Pollinator. The clip, which you can watch at Blondie’s VEVO YouTube channel, features scenes of the group’s members in various gritty locations throughout New York City.

The video was directed by Dikayl Rimmasch, one of the filmmakers behind Beyonce‘s visual album Lemonade, who also shot the video for the first single from Pollinator, “Fun.” At the center of the “Long Time” clip are a series of scenes featuring frontwoman Debbie Harry wildly driving a cab around the Big Apple.

“Long Time” is a collaboration between Blondie and indie-R&B artist Blood Orange, and features infectious ’80s synth sounds and dance beats reminiscent of the band’s chart-topping 1979 hit, “Heart of Glass.” A limited-edition seven-inch vinyl single featuring “Long Time” and a non-album track, “The Breaks,” will be available exclusively in independent record shops as part of the 2017 Record Store Day campaign this Saturday, April 22.

Pollinator will be released on May 5, and will be available on CD, heavyweight vinyl, as a digital download and as a limited edition box set. In addition to Blood Orange, the album features guest appearances by Joan Jett, ex-Smiths guitarist Johnny Marr, The StrokesNick Valensi, TV on the Radio‘s Dave Sitek, and pop artists Sia and Charli XCX.

In support of Pollinator, Blondie will be teaming up with Garbage for the Rage and Rapture tour, which gets underway July 5 in Saratoga, California.
